Moving Average Strategy


Moving Average Cross Forex trading

strategy is a simple system that is based on the cross of the two standard indicators the fast EMA (exponential moving average) and the slow EMA. You can also use our freeAdjustable Moving Average Cross expert advisorto trade this strategy automatically in MetaTrader platform.

Features
Very easy strategy to follow. Simple indicators used. It's easy to set stop-loss. Moving averages are laggy can lag up to 10

bars.
Ineffective during the flat markets.

Strategy Set-Up
Any currency pair and timeframe should work. Add an exponential moving average to the

chart, set its period to 9, apply to Close, set color to red (optional) this is your fast moving average (FMA).
Add another exponential moving average to

the chart, set its period to 14, apply to Close, set color to blue (optional) this is your slow moving average (SMA).

Entry Conditions
Enter Long position when FMA crosses SMA

from below.

Enter Short position when FMA crosses SMA

from above.

Exit Conditions
Stop-loss for Long positions should be set to

the Low of the last candle before the cross occurred. For Short positions to the High of the last candle before the cross.
Take-profit should depend on the stop-loss

and should be not less that stop-loss. I recommend setting TP to 1.5 * SL or 2 * SL.
If another cross appears before the stop-loss

or take-profit are triggered close the position.
